Turkey's Tiny Border with Azerbaijan

While the main section of AZERBAIJAN is separated from TURKEY by Armenia, Turkey does have a border with Azerbaijan - more specifically with a region known as Naxçivan. Officially named Naxçıvan Muxtar Respublikası in the Azerbaijani language, Naxçivan is an autonomous republic serving as Azerbaijan's largest exclave area. Turkey's far eastern border with Naxçivan is only about 6.2 miles or 9.98 kilometers long. To the left of the border is a Turkish panhandle surrounded by Iran to the south, Armenia to the north, and Naxçivan to the east and southeast. Mount Ararat is about 30 kilometers west of Turkey's border with Naxçivan.
